Fishing Alaska on Dollar$ A Day
One of Our
National Best Sellers on Alaska Sportfishing and Hunting
"Such a book from some other authors I would have likely trashed. But from the Chris Batin, who lives, fishes, hunts, eats and sleeps in the Alaskan wilderness, you can bank on the soundness of the book. This book is a nuts and bolts, hard-core, no-nonsense guide to the cabins, the fishing found nearby, and detailed topographical maps of the regions...a reference book that offers an inexpensive passport to America's last great frontier on a budget." -- Bob McNally, Outdoor Editor, Florida Times-Union

"Fishing Alaska on Dollars a Day ...targets some prize fishing opportunities in the national forests of southeast Alaska, and might come as a rude awakening to someone who's just paid $3,000 for a week at an Alaska fishing lodge." - Field and Stream magazine
"Fishing Alaska is much more than a cabin listing. The chapters on where you'll find the fish and recommended tackle and methods are alone worth the price. Outdoor Equipment Review recommends this book for sportsmen and families looking for affordable Alaskan adventure. Even those who fish Alaska at full-service-lodge fare will find the book informative. So will boat, raft and kayak travelers, since many of the cabin sites are coastal." - Outdoor Equipment Review

- Bob Mottram, Outdoor Editor, Tacoma Morning News Tribune
"The book is much more than a listing of cabins. The chapters pointing out where to find fish and what tackle and methods to use are alone worth its price.
